Leicester 2 - Liverpool 3, positives and negatives, player ratings and match report

DATE: 25.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Watching everything live from the stands is something different. Telly is telly, live is live, that's how it is, no secret about it. Great atmosphere and a fantastic match, five goals, but in the end 0 points

Watching the stats shows that this was an even affair, and a draw would have been a fair result. For a spectator either supporting Liverpool or being a neutral it would have been a fantastic game to watch, but for a City fan it was a bit of frustration in the end.

The game showed two teams that wanted something out of the game, winning was their only aim. While City missed chances, Liverpool scored what they needed to bring 3 points back with them on the road.

Schmeichel must be blamed for the first goal, not able to cover the post from the Salah challenge, and after only 15 minutes Liverpool were 1-0 up. City made a number of attempts to score, but after 23 minutes Liverpool was rewarded a free kick just outside the penalty box.

Again I would say that Kasper Schmeichel should have been closer to the post and seen the way Coutinho would curle the ball into the corner, instead he is placing himself a bit wrongly and can't reach the ball, 2-0 is a fact.

City fights well and new chances appear. Okazaki had two clear chanses earlier in the first half, but just before the end he manage to be the last man on the ball and City equalises just before the break.

To come out to the 2nd half with a 1-2 result was not that bad, and hope was that City would go straight for their 2nd goal. They really tried hard, but was again punished being too open in defence and 68 minutes and a number of City chances, Jordan Henderson scores and Liverpool are 3-1 up.

Jamie Vardy makes the most out of a good City attack and his header goes in, and the goals gives City great hope for a third goal. And when just minutes later a penalty is rewarded, we all hoped that we could equalise.

The saying is that the one being involved in the penalty given, should just let another take the shot. But Vardy loves taking penalties and scoring goals and he is again the one taking the shot. Mignolet manages to get his body on the ball, which is just a hard shot.

Then City are not given a 2nd penalty which should have been given. Another mad miss by Slimani in the end, not being able to head the ball straight on goal, from an excellent crosser from Vardy. Schmeichel comes up to be part of a last attack, but that also ends in nothing and a new home defeat is a fact, this time City were fully in the game, sadly no points, but that is life.

Vardy could have been the first penalty scorer for Leicester City in a game against Liverpool for the first time in 40 years, with the last penalty scoring player in a game against Liverpool was former fox Billy Hughes, back in the 1977-78 season.

Positives:
Playing good attacking football
Fighting hard in all 90 minutes, putting pressure on Liverpool all the way
Vardy and Maguire are excellent, hard fighting and really setting the standard
Posession is good against a team that is regarded among the top
Shakespeare does what Shakespeare could do, good game management

Negatives
Schmeichel not at his best, losing the game because of him not being 100 %
Subs not able to make the difference as they should
Mahrez totally out of it, sad to see
King is not a player to use as a defending midfielder against Liverpool, but Iborra is not 100 % yet, and James injured
Not able to score more than two from at least 6 or 7 clear chances
Referee missing a clear penalty

Player ratings:
Schmeichel 5, Simpson 5, Morgan 5, Maguire 7, Chilwell 5, King 3, Ndidi 6, Mahrez 3, Albrighton 4, Vardy 7, Okazaki 6
